Ferry + Historic Center Tour

At the scheduled time, we'll set sail from the port in Buenos Aires on the fast ferry to Colonia del Sacramento. We'll dock in Colonia del Sacramento after a journey of around 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Having disembarked, we'll set off on a 1.5-hour guided walking tour of the historic center of Colonia del Sacramento, one of the most beautiful cities in Uruguay. We'll spend an hour discovering the picturesque architecture of the UNESCO World Heritage Site-designated old quarter.

Admiring the façades of the historic buildings, we'll see how they combine Portuguese and Spanish colonial styles of architecture, reflecting the history of the city. During the tour, we'll also get to see the iconic lighthouse next to the Bastion de San Pedro, the Basilica of the Holy Sacrament, and the cobbled street known as Calle de los Suspiros, the "Street of Sighs".

After the tour of Colonia del Sacramento, you'll have some free time until the afternoon, when it'll be time to take the ferry back to Buenos Aires.
